Our school-based Environment Conservation Curriculum covers Solar Panel Project that integrates a cross-subject research on environment conservation and an Eco-tour Guide Training Programme for teachers and students.
      • Learning and Teaching Plan
        • (1) Whole-school Language Policy: English is used as the Medium of Instruction for all academic and cultural subjects, except for Chinese Language, Chinese History and Life Education. Putonghua is used as the Medium of Instruction for Chinese Language and Chinese History. As language is the tool to all learning, accessibility and enjoyment are of utmost importance. Language progression is vastly cultivated in our school through many ways: - implementing morning and lunch reading sessions; - integrating debate, drama and literature elements into the language curricula; - organizing activities such as exchange programmes with overseas schools; - hosting inter-house drama, debate and public speaking contests; - inviting international artists, athletes and professionals from around the globe to give talks and exchange with our students, which helps raise literacy standards by providing pupils with rich learning experiences.
        • (2) Learning and Teaching Strategies: Language permeates the whole curriculum both as a vehicle for learning and as an object of study in its own right. The school aims at cultivating our students' interest in reading and writing, which is one of the key components for students to excel in learning. Every teaching staff, irrespective of their subject areas, shall promote literacy with due emphasis on text-attack skills and good reading behaviour, using writing frames to help students scaffold their writing skills. Teaching children about making, presenting and responding to drama is one of our system approaches in curriculum development that will lead to a fun learning process and open up new possibilities for developing children's literacy. Our school curriculum, structured to maintain both breadth and balance, is catering for students' different needs, abilities and interest. In order to build on the excellent achievement of a "through-train" school, with its affiliated primary school in developing a learning platform on Information Technology, teachers of the 'through-train' schools exchange and discuss regularly on issues relating the smooth transition between primary and secondary school curriculum.

For S.1, the focus is to develop students' interests and potential and build up a good academic foundation. It is important to build up a strong foundation and create a positive environment for their personal growth. For S.2, the focus is to develop students' character and leadership skills and understand the jobs nature and requirements. Students start to have more understanding on different kinds of jobs, so as to have the aspiration for their future careers.

Students should understand his or her interests and abilities before making a decision. They should know their strengths.

For S.5, they should be proactive to maximize the chance to explore the institutions in HK, overseas and mainland so as to prepare themselves ahead for any study opportunities.
